Well I have to say, that would have made the Christmas mass I went too a lot more fun.

When living in Istanbul, we learned to laugh at how the Turks and Greeks used to say "oh those Turks/Greeks, we're so different from them." Same people ethnically and culturally, just their form of worship is different.

When I saw the link, I immediately expected some sort of Israel crap. Oh well, Merry Christmas and all that stuff.

Sadly, I have nothing witty to say about what you said (too late in the day), so I'll just go with this link about the greek style (new window)

It's like each side is reenacting a scene from the Eastern Front of World War II.

Looks awesome, but also very dangerous. Those aren't your typical bottle rocket, those are some pretty pretty powerful rockets.

Only peeve I have of the video is that particular one isn't from April 2009 as noted, but several years ago. It's been floating on the innertubez a while. Lot's others too. But the party remains the same. Bring Ouzo.

If only religious wars were actually fought this way and not with massive casualties etc.

Which ever church hit the bell that year gets to wear the pants that year.
In case of no rockets hitting either bell,
neither church gets to make fun of the other church for the whole year.

now just what the fark is wrong with this country that we can't do cool shiat like this? No, we have to stuff like this outlawed in case someone shoots their eye out, or something.

Well, the guy firing rockets is wearing a bandanna over his mouth. I don't think it's technically legal there. Trying to report it would probably just be viewed as an asshole activity.

It's sort of how people turn a blind eye to fireworks on the 4th of July in the United States in places where they're banned.

Or maybe he just didnt want to breathe in all that rocket exhaust. We can never have nice things like rocket fights here *sigh*

esteban9: When living in Istanbul, we learned to laugh at how the Turks and Greeks used to say "oh those Turks/Greeks, we're so different from them." Same people ethnically and culturally, just their form of worship is different.

Pretty much. Well, that and a higher occurrence of the Unibrow amongst the Turks. They're both united in their hatred of the Italians, though. Both seem convinced of the idea that Italians are a bunch of thieving bastards.

Was hanging out in Katakolon (sp?) in Greece for a day, and noticed that there was an Italian cruise ship parked at the docks (population of about 3000 I think, but has two cruise ship docks). I was in a little coffee shop when the ship pulled out. "The Italians are leaving?" I asked the owner. "Yes, and thank God. They STEAL EVERYTHING."

Got a similar sentiment in Marmaris, Turkiye. The only thing either seems to hate more than Italians in their country are gypsies, and even then it's a close second. (Italians make better coffee than either, though)

In regards to the video (completely changing direction): This story gets posted every year on Fark, but this is by far the best video I've ever seen of it. I'm convinced that Greeks are always on the verge of a violent outburst against anyone even slightly different from themselves (even coming from the next town), this is just another way of (spectacularly) expressing their xenophobia.

At least it's a semi-non-destructive way to go about it.

Greeks: We love visitors (because you spend your money here), but fark you if you're planning on MOVING TO MY TOWN.

Like many video clips posted on the internet, it would have been much more enjoyable with the stupid tacked-on music.

Isn't there some kind of festival in some Mexican town where they have a parade with floats or something that are basically made of fireworks, and they light them off in the middle of the streets and people run through them like complete psychos?

The churches were not "having mass." They were Orthodox churches, not Catholic. Catholics have mass.

Why can't you shoot rockets at your friends? There's no law stopping you. And they're selling fireworks in Texas right now for New Years.

Of course, most people with an IQ rating of "door knob" and higher have figured out that getting hit with flaming, exploding rockets is painful.

Imagine what you'd think if you happened to be there while this was happening and had no idea what was going on. Just glanced out the window of your hotel room or something. You'd shiat a cathedral.

I hate people like you.

Too afraid of their own shadow to take risks, and yet you blame it on others.

Nobody's stopping you from doing all sorts of fun, dangerous stuff. Go a-farking-head.

They're lucky they don't live near Israel. They would get the shiat bombed out of them, while the christians are eating popcorn 2 streets farther.

They're lucky they don't live near Israel.

Some of those scenes reminded me of the last Gaza war. Palestinians going about their lives, walking around and dining out, while fire falls from the sky

Yes, nothing says Christmas like turning it into a Disney Fourth of Juy extravaganza. Jesus Christ would have really appreciated that.
WTF is wrong with people.
